Overwatch hero Orisa release date announced for PS4, Xbox One and PC

Unlike Bastion - one of the game's more popular robot heroes that fills a defensive role, Orisa a tank class robot character that can absorb large amounts of damage and has her gameplay designed around protection.

Blizzard has announced that Overwatch's brand new hero, Orisa, will be hitting the game on Tuesday, March 21, alongside a new "Behind the Scenes" preview trailer.

Part of the Public Test Realm server for some time, Orisa has been going through extensive bug-testing and balancing changes. In a couple of skins for the soon-to-be-released tank character Orisa, it looks like Genji has been absorbed into her belly, fighting to escape through the cracks in her chrome-plated armor.

Here's the aforementioned Overwatch video, in which the designers talk a bit more about the development of Orisa.

As explained by Blizzard, Orisa's main weapon is her rapid-fire Fusion Driver, an automatic gun with good range and accuracy even at a distance-though it comes at a cost, as Orisa's movement slows down while she fires.

Halt: Orisa launches a graviton charge which she can detonate, slowing nearby enemies and pulling them towards the explosion. She can also use Fortify which provides 50 percent damage reduction and rejects crowd control effects.

Protective barrier: Orisa throws out a stationary barrier that can protect her and her allies from enemy fire.
